Eva Amurri Martino wears a few of her essential everyday pieces of jewelry

Jewelry has always been my thing– and I get it from my Mama, big time.  She loves jewelry and has collected it for years.  I started collecting beautiful pieces as a teen, and I love combing over the pieces and remembering the story behind everything.  Since becoming a Mom, though, I find that the majority of my jewelry stays in our safe– and I tend to gravitate towards beautiful (and less precious) pieces that I can wear day in and day out without worrying too much.  Who has time to switch out their jewelry with every daily outfit?!

I get a lot of questions on social media about the little pieces that I wear, so today I thought I’d do a roundup of some of my favorite pieces of everyday jewelry– including a necklace that I’ve barely taken off in recent weeks! Just click on the images in the collage for more info…

    I started collecting jewelry as souvenirs from my travels! I remember a friend of mine saying that her mom traveled all over the world and would buy a piece of jewelry from everywhere she went. When my friend was little she said she use to sit and go through her mom’s jewelry box and ask her about all the pieces and where they came from and hear about her travels! I LOVED that idea for my kids someday, so even when I was single I would make sure my main souvenir on a trip was a piece of jewelry – Australian Opal ring from Australia, Chaing Man Silver bracelets from Thailand, a cross necklace from St Paul’s Cathedral is London, etc. My husband loves the idea and appreciates us not getting silly souvenirs from our trips and instead investing in something I’ll actually use. Until my kids are old enough, I will find myself sifting through my jewelry box and remembering the stories behind the pieces.
    I am like you though, and tend to gravitate toward simple understated pieces for everyday. I love your bar necklace!!

    Even though I am an artist and teacher and work with my hands constantly, I have wrists full of bangles. Each one has a story. I buy jewelry on my travels and to commemorate life events. Most importantly I buy myself a piece every time I reach a significant professional goal. It’s a tangible reminder of how my hard work has paid off, and an empowering “treat yourself!”

    Ps– LOVE David Yurman’s designs for their elegance and hardiness!

    These are wonderful pieces! I love that they can be dressed up or down and they aren’t super expensive so you don’t feel nervous about wearing them all the time! I’ve seen really lovely necklaces with finger print pendants! I’d get my son’s thumbprint. Oooh, and maybe my husband’s ring finger! Cheese alert! And I just, just saw a girl’s necklace with pendant of her children’s silhouette’s. She got it from @dapperanddarling_ I think my mother would love one of those 🙂 and of course me.
